Anglers wanting to go on a halibut fishing charter in area 2C (shown on map) in southeast Alaska, which includes trips from Ketchikan, Sitka, Juneau and other southeast locations, can only retain one fish per day.
Area 3A, with charter fishing trips out of Homer, Valdez, Kodiak and other locations in the central Gulf, has a two-fish bag limit.
A new limited-entry system for halibut charter operations will take effect in 2011, limiting the number of charter boats in the guided halibut sport fishery in Areas 2C and 3A.
